Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic are preparing for the launch of their first route to South America. From 2020, the British-based carrier will start flying the 11-hour, 55 minutes long flight to São Paulo in Brazil. The new route is expected to directly compete with British Airways and LATAM.

The British carrier will use a Boeing 787 for the route, flying daily from Heathrow to Guarulhos International Airport, Sao Paulo in Brazil. The new route is mainly aimed at leisure passengers going for a holiday. The aircraft will feature the Upper Class, Premium and Economy Delight, Classic and Light cabin classes.

Juha Jarvinen, Virgin Atlantic’s Executive Vice President of Commercial said:

“There are a significant number of corporate customers and multinational businesses located in this Powerhouse of South America, who can now enjoy the Virgin Atlantic experience on this busy international route.

This is a prime opportunity for Virgin Holidays who are busy securing a range of ancillary partners and diverse accommodation options for those customers seeking a full-service holiday offering.”
